Patricia Redmond rated it really liked it Dec 30, I took it when we walked along waj old first part of the Lycian Way last March. I like using old roads, because I enjoy speculating about their purpose and the people who made and used them, and looking for ruins in the forest or scrub. Their strategic position gave them unique opportunities for sea-trade and at times for piracy.
A project the size of the Lycian Way must have involved the cooperation of many different parties. The authorities were really confused — the concept of trekking tourism was completely unknown in Ankara and the Tourism, Culture and Forestry Ministries spent a year trying to pass this hot potato from one to another before we eventually got permission to mark the trail.

By the time I was halfway done walking the Lycian Way, I had cursed Kate Clow; thrown her book across many ravines and roadbeds having given up trying to find the waypoints she described; and finally bought a German book covering the route.
It was so much easier to follow the German directions, even though my German is pretty poor. We love this photo.

January 30, at 7: The start point, at Oludeniz, is 2 hours from Dalaman airport and the end point is near the international airport at Antalya. I am new in the country and do not feel like hiking on my own.
I first visited Turkey in and spent three weeks trekking and visiting various historic sites. What has the overall attitude been towards these trail projects amongst Turks? Terra firma all the way for me.
Trekking is best in spring or autumn — February-May or September-November — summer in Lycia is too hot for long walks.

Lycian WayTrekking. Definitely the Carian Way will be the next successful trail, so hike it now before it becomes well-used. The portion of the Lycian Way I hiked was stunningly beautiful. Want to Read saving…. Mitsy rated it did not like it Oct 29, Then, along came the Lycian Way.
I would like to respectfully add that Adrasan is also a great place to base yourself to explore the Lycian way, you walk from Adrasan to Olympos along the Lycian Way and also from Adrasan to Gelidonya as photographed in this article. This will give you two days on the trail with accommodation before you take a bus back to lycizn starting point.
Maybe the area around Belos between Finike and Demre combines both these interests best.
